Spray paint performers are proving popular at Fisherman’s Wharf.
The Port of San Francisco began regulating street performers last year in the tourist-dominated area, and 30 people, including six spray paint artists, are currently licensed by the Port to perform there.
The spray painting is proving so popular that the artists are set to have three dedicated performance spaces set aside for them by the Port.
“The spray paint artists’ success and popularity have created scheduling and space challenges within the program,” wrote Port senior property manager Katharine Arrow in a memo to Port Commissioners. “By permitting their exclusive scheduling, the [spray paint artists] agree that they will not schedule in any of the other locations.”
